    What scope is everyone running for elr

    That's very interesting, thank you for that. Takes all (or most) of the user subjectivity out of the equation. As it should.

    Proof Research gas ports undersized?

    Ok, I'll try that before I send it back. Thanks!

    6mm ARC extremely dirty?

    Holy crap!!! I did a carbine course with well over 1500 rounds (probably 2K) over a weekend with no cleaning and it wasn't a quarter as dirty as that.

    Proof Research gas ports undersized?

    Ah sorry, you are correct. It's an 18" +1 gas system, not +2. On the other stuff, I'm pretty content that all of the components are top end and brand new. The BCG, type 2 Bolt, adjustable Gas block, buffer and spring are all new JP components. The Gas tube is Proof's that came with the...

    Proof Research gas ports undersized?

    Sorry, that's BS to attack the poster for not reading instructions. I'm having the exact same issue on an 18"+2 gas system. I wrote to Proof and they were initially super helpful and responded right away to try a bunch of different things. Obviously they suggested checking the gas block...

    Carbon ring removal

    It's probably been answered elsewhere, but what causes the carbon ring and is there anything to do to prevent it or slow it down? Is it from the Case necks being oversized and not allowing it to form a seal? Or just the nature of the game?

    **6 Creedmoor**

    No experience with the N540, but I'm having amazing success with IMR 4451 and 105 Hybrids in both my 6 CM Bolt (AI AT - Proof barrel) and my new JP 6CM upper. My bolt gun also really loves the 109 LR Hybrids with 4451 as well. I find that powder is a great substitute for H4350 and is typically...

    6 ARC dies - what do you recommend for precision loading?

    Last question..... does the 6 PPC seater die work well for the ARC? I've seen some other posts that reference using that die as a substitute. Just wondered if anyone has tried it and what the results are.

    6 ARC dies - what do you recommend for precision loading?

    Thanks @alamo5000 and @Lunchbag for the tip on the Mighty Armory dies. I had not heard of them. A quick look at them looks really interesting. I mandrel all my various calibers with an LE Wilson mandrel die (love it), but I like that the Mighty Armory does both in one step.

    That sounds good. Thank you!

    6 ARC dies - what do you recommend for precision loading?

    Cool, thanks. However, I was not really expecting "problems" with the dies. I'm sure they turn out acceptable ammo just fine. What I was interested in is are the Hornady "match" dies on the same level of precision as the Redding Competition dies or such? I've been spoiled by my Reddings for...

    6 ARC dies - what do you recommend for precision loading?

    So, I'm building a 6 ARC AR-15 upper for long range precision. I'm planning to take it out to 1200+ as well as maybe do some AR-15 Tac Comps with it. What reloading dies do you all recommend? From an interwebs search, it seems the options are basic Hornady or RCBS Matchmaster dies on 17 month...

    Building the Perfect Reloading Room

    DUDE!! That's a proper comfy man-cave going on there. Hopefully you have a Beer/wine fridge in place as well. Well done!

    **6 Creedmoor**

    I agree. I have a couple of very promising loads with Bergers...... 105 HT around 2975-2980 and 109 LRHT around 2950-2960. They get out to 1300+ pretty easily and very accurately. So I'm hoping I get a lot of barrel life out of these. I just don't feel the need for more speed.

    What scope is everyone running for elr

    Next time I'm at the range (maybe tomorrow), I'll put my S&B 5-25 PMII side by side against my Vortex 4.5-27 at something distinct about 2000 yds away. At our LR steel range at my club - there is a rocky ridgeline the steel targets are mounted on that goes at least 2500 yds out. The steel...

    What scope is everyone running for elr

    I haven't looked thru or shot with my Razor much past about 1500 yds. But it's really good at that range. I think the further out you go, the optical quality requirements get much more demanding. I have no experience with the newer scopes that are all the rage now like Khales, ZCo and such...

    Best bullets for a .260 Gasser?

    **6 Creedmoor**

    What speeds are you running with which Bullet? I found a couple of great speeds for the Berger 105 Hybrid and the 109 LR Hybrid. I'm running the 105 at about 2970 and the 109 @2940. Both are about 0.020 off the lands. Both shoot lights out at 1200+. And I just passed 100 rounds on the...
